I'm Back...

Okay so I've been gone for a while (almost a month and a half) but I have been busy working, planning, and crafting (of course).

The twins (reminder...they're really not twins). graduated. YIPEE!!!

My sister, Adriana, graduated on May 31st from Hingham High School (family tradition). The graduation ceremony was nice and it only lasted 2 hours. Great job to the organizers.

Twin, Natalie, graduated from New Beginnings Academy (a Christian private school). Her graduation ceremony was nice but long. It was long because unlike most schools each graduate spoke. Private schools are different. It was nice and the party was fun.

As I am typing this, I just realized the pictures are at home on my computer so...I'll post them later.

Congratulations to the Class of 2009!!!

On the craft front, I am working on blankets and baby shower things. I also sold two diaper cakes that came out really cute. Thanks to Auntie Georgia for her advice. I made a diaper cake a while back and she said, "the baby items take away from the beauty of the diaper cake". Guess she was right because I like these two more (I still include a few baby items).

Now I have a question. I am always very impressed by all the items that everyone makes. My question is how do you all find the time to work on your items? I have a long list of things I would like to make and I always start stuff but I am starting to feel like I never complete anything. I'm sure a lot of this is because I drive everywhere now. Before I commuted and that was when I did most of my work. How can I still find time to crochet??? Advise please.

Happy Hooking...

Nice to see you back! As for the amount of projects I do...its all thanks to my work commute. I take the subway 45 minutes back and forth to work everyday. So that's an hour and a half of crochet time everyday (if I can find a seat)!

Welcome Back. Like Crafty Christina, I have a long commute and try to get as much knitting/crocheting/blogging done then. So that when I return home I can do some sewing.

I knit and crochet on the bus rides to and from work (when I'm not sandwiched in, and have a little room), and also at the bus stop, and in the car (since my husband drives), and on my breaks and lunches at work. And when I'm watching TV with the kids. And while I'm cooking dinner and waiting for something to be ready to come out of the oven. I haven't gotten to the point yet where I knit or crochet in the bathroom, LOL! Well, I take that back. I do crochet and knit in the bathroom when my son is playing in the tub. At least I'm not doing it while actually using the toliet! Any spare minutes are a good time to knit or crochet!
